MT. LAUREL, NJ - Array Behavioral Care is supporting more than 60 local disabled military veterans who participate in the Flyers Warriors Hockey Club by providing online mental and behavioral health care services.
Array AtHome is providing Flyers Warriors players access to their team of licensed professional therapists and psychiatry clinicians through convenient, online video calls. The players can also search Array’s clinician directory, select the one who best suits their needs, schedule a session, and receive care all from the comfort and privacy of their homes. Telepsychiatry has been proven to be as effective as in-person care and has allowed more and more people – including veterans – to access the behavioral health care they need, particularly during the COVID pandemic.
“We are committed to transforming access to quality behavioral care and addressing the staggering mental health disparities among veterans and other underserved communities and populations,” stated Geoffrey Boyce, CEO of Array Behavioral Care. “We are pleased to make these services accessible to the Flyers Warriors who so bravely served our country.”
“When the Flyers started this Warrior initiative, it was our mission to provide our disabled veterans with an opportunity to play hockey. We started with a Learn to Skate program, and now we have grown the Warrior program into three solid hockey teams,” said Brad Marsh, a former Flyer and coach of the Warriors team. “We thank Array for providing this opportunity to these heroes.”
“These services from Array Behavioral Care will provide our players with much needed support,” said Bill Duffy, a 21-year Air Force Veteran and current Flyers Warriors player.
Currently, there are not enough psychiatry clinicians in the country to meet demand, and telepsychiatry has made it easier for them to see more people in more places. In addition to increased access to specialists, telepsychiatry offers the added benefits of shorter wait times for appointments, scheduling flexibility and improved safety and convenience. With Array AtHome, appointments are available 7 days a week, including nights and weekends, without the hassle of traffic or travel times, taking off work or sitting in waiting rooms. Many people have embraced telebehavioral health during the COVID-19 pandemic as it allows them to receive the care that they need without risk of exposure.
